Life Lessons for the American Gentleman

Lesson No. 149: Look ‘Em In The Eyes.

A Gentleman is a conversationalist. He can work a room with grace and easy, he instills confidence in his friends, partners, family and associates. He does all of this with a simple gesture. Look them in the eyes. Do not look down, do not look past them or away. Look a person in the eyes and confidently listen to them, look them in the eyes and confidently speak to them. You can convey both respect and trust simply by looking into a person’s eyes when you speak with them.
